Tata discontinues the old Nano; Nano eMax (CNG) and GenX Nano soldier on

Tata Motors has had a habit of keeping the older versions of Nano on sale alongside the new, refreshed model. But with the biggest update coming in the form of the GenX Nano, the company appears to have changed the tradition. According to a report on Team-BHP, Tata Motors had discontinued all variants of the Nano except the new GenX model and the CNG equipped Tata Nano eMax.

The GenX Nano was launched earlier this year, and brought along the ease of an automatic transmission with an optional AMT (automated manual transmission). Nano eMax is the CNG equipped version, but doesn’t get AMT. Powering both the versions is a 2-cylinder 624cc engine that makes 38PS (33PS on CNG) and 51Nm (45Nm on CNG) of torque. Unlike the earlier model, the GenX Nano also gets power steering, which debuted on the Nano Twist.

The company is also said to have received great response for the AMT equipped GenX Nano. Since the AMT kits are outsourced, waiting periods are as long as 2 months, adds the report.

So has time come when the Nano sees success? Too soon to comment on that (until Tata releases its sales figures), but if the demand has increased, that’s good thing indeed.
